Rookie Camp Day 2 – Tyler Toffoli raw quotes

Raw quotes from Tyler Toffoli…

On if Rookie Camp is different this year, as he’s being looked at as one of the leaders:

“Yeah, I think obviously you have to be a leader. If you watch the practices, our line is going first in all the drills and just trying to be crisp and make sure everyone is being sharp. We’re just trying our best, and obviously it’s a good chance for us to be getting our legs going again and getting ready for training camp.”

On moving to left wing:

“Honestly, I haven’t heard a whole lot about it yet. I think we’ll see in training camp what happens with that. I went home and when I was skating, I was working both sides, so we’ll have to wait and see. I feel comfortable working either side, so we’ll see how I fit in.”

On any concerns of playing on the left side:

“It’s just different. It’s different turning- you have to turn a different way. You have to pivot the other way. Just little things like that, but once you get confident things can be kind of easier.”

On if he’ll keep number 73:

“I haven’t been asked to change it or anything, so I’m just going to kind of go with it and try to make the team. My goal is to make the team I’m not too worried about changing my number right now, to be honest.”

On being on a line with Linden Vey and Tanner Pearson again (for Saturday’s game vs. Anaheim):

“It’s been fun in practice, so it should be fun. We have a lot of chemistry, and I think we know where we are on the ice. So it’s good, it will be a lot of fun.”

On his difference this year, mentally:

“I’m just more ready to make the team. Every year I come in I say I want to make the team, I want to make it. I’ve had a chance to play on the Kings and I really want to earn my spot on the roster and I want to play here.”

On if he has done any different conditioning:

“I train here for a month in the summer. I feel really good, this is the best I’ve felt. My fitness assessment was really good, I think. The best numbers for myself. I’m feeling pretty good right now.”

On if any of the other prospects have been asking about what it’s like to play in the NHL:

“Nobody really talks about it. Nobody talks to me about it. I don’t think the guys really…I mean obviously it was a cool experience for me. I got a taste and I know what I have to do.  Everybody else wants to play on the team and we’re all fighting for the same spot. They’re doing everything that they can to make the team and I’m doing everything that I can.”

On being a top-six player with the Kings:

“Well, everybody can play everywhere. You look at the Kings’ roster, there are so many good players. Everybody works hard, everybody can really score when they have a chance to score. We will have to wait and see and see how things turn out.”
